Person: Ingham, Albert
Albert Ingham was an English mathematician who worked in number theory and in particular on the prime number theorem.
Mathematical Profile (Excerpt):
 Albert Ingham was educated at Stafford Grammar School, and from there he won a scholarship to Trinity College, Cambridge, in December 1917.
 In 1926 Ingham was appointed a Reader at Leeds University but four years later returned to Cambridge as a university lecturer and a fellow of King's College, on the death of Ramsey, and remained there for the rest of his life.
 Many of the ideas here, as in other work of Ingham's, came from the joint work undertaken by Harald Bohr and Littlewood.
 ran out of print, Ingham could never be persuaded to prepare a second edition.
 Ingham's work was on the Riemann zeta function, the theory of numbers, the theory of series and Tauberian theorems.
 Ingham, in 1942, was able to find an ingenious method to show how a counterexample could be constructed.
 Some of Ingham's work on number theory was carried further by Linnik.
 Ingham led a life of great simplicity.
Born 3 April 1900, Northampton, England. Died 6 September 1967, Chamonix, France.
